Pro Choice argument: "I know several women who have had abortions and they don't regret it at all".
Adolf Eichmann went to his execution saying he did not regret his participation in the Nazi holocaust. That does not make what he did defensible. Lack of regret relates to the conscience of the person acting, not to the rightness of the act. Many people do not regret their actions, but whether they do or not is irrelevant.
Now if we really want to see what role regret plays in the abortion issue, let’s survey women who dealt with unplanned pregnancies in their past. Let’s ask those who aborted if they now wish that they had given birth, and ask those who gave birth if they now wish they had aborted. What we will find is that for every woman who says she regrets giving life to her child, thousands will say they regret killing theirs.This is evident in the thousands of support groups across America to help women overcome the emotional train wreck of abortion. Interestingly enough, no one has found it necessary to start even one support group to help women deal with the emotional toll of letting their children live.
If regret was needed to establish wrong doing, our legal system would be ineffective.
